Asynchronous Learning Monday, November 23, and Tuesday, November 4, 2020
Monday and Tuesday, classes will be held asynchronously. Students should follow the current schedule. Upper school students should Zoom in at 7:55 am with Class 8 and middle school students should Zoom in at 8:40 am with Class 2 for attendance. Students will work on assignments assigned by each class. The schedule and class assignments will be posted in OnCampus. Giguere and ELL students are not allowed to attend classes at school. They should attend asynchronously.


Due to the pandemic, this year’s WJZ Black History Oratory Competition will be conducted entirely online, but now more than ever, we need our students to speak up and speak out about the issues that matter. 

High School Students will write an original essay (600 words or less) based on a quote by a prominent African American historical figure. The students with the highest-scored essays will be invited to record themselves performing their original speeches at home to compete for scholarship prize money.

The top speeches will be broadcast on WJZ News, and for the first time in BHOC history, the winners will be announced on TV!

Stay tuned for this year’s quotes! Essays will be due on January 31st.

Anyone interested in participating in this competition should contact Coach Sykes ( by November 23rd. Coach Sykes will help interested students get organized, as well as help with the drafting process.
